Anyone shooting 10mm?

I have a Stainless II Target in 10mm. 10mm is a great cartridge, and it really handles well in the Kimber.

Another 4 1/2 year old thread dug up, since Gmountain is an active member he's probably see the numerous pictures and range reports posted by you and Tom.

Just doing my part since another member said today that we should create more threads so I found plenty of 'new 2 others" to comment on.
Key word being create not resurrect.

If another member wants more new threads to respond to tell him to create them as long as there not for his Collectors Edition Solo LOL.

I won't complain! Newb to the form and I've wanted a 1911 10mm to accompany my Glock 20. Glock 20 is great BUT it just does not have the class that the 1911 platform carries.

Anyone have at elast a few thousand rounds down the pipe of a TLE II ? How has the pistol held up? Fussy? Eat it all?

If anyone has the railed TLE II please let me know how it does with a light on the end of it. Affect the slide at all?

Big thanks as I'm really on the edge and if I get one I want it to say Yonkers, NY on the side.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois SeanE, how about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

I shoot two 10mm's and definitely enjoy that cartridge. An original blued Colt Delta Elite from the 1980's and a new Sig P220 SAO in 10mm.

I started shooting from day-one, I had a Bren Ten, their four inch model, The Special Forces one with hard chroming.

One problem, no ammo. I called Hensley & Gibbs who stated they had just made a "cherry" for their 10mm clients. It was the exact profile of the first Norma FMJ.

I still have the mold and the handles. I keep hoping some other 10mm bullet casters step forward. But not many people want to use a 4-ganger mold.

Hello back!

I hope I can get some recommendations. I'm really back and forth on the Kimber v the Springfield TRP. Can't get a range anywhere near me for a loaner to rent.

Both look like they will do the job and do it well. I have a Kimber Raptor II 5" and a Raptor II carry that both shoot lights out. Torn!!

Not a lot of traffic on this site. I ended up finding the 2 pistols in a single almost LGS. I'll scream how amazing my I feel my Kimber Raptor II 5" and carry Raptor are BUT the TLE 10mm was kind of a let down. Granted it was a feel in the hand only! But I have a few Springfields and a few Kimbers. The Springfield TRP really felt like it was MEANT for 10mm the Kimber did not. Not that there was anything wrong with the Kimber it just did not stack up to the Springfield. Especially the non-ambi safety. seemed kinda odd not to have it.

Springfield comes in on Tues.
